Owner, Chef & Author - Smith & Daughters, Smith & Deli, and Lona Misa all based in Melbourne. Shannon's new cookbook, Vegan With Bite is available online.
"My food replicates non-vegan dishes. My thing is understanding how to replicate fats and mouthfeel. People say, 'why do vegans have to eat things called chicken?' It's the most boring question. It's not hard to understand - vegans aren't vegans because they hate roast chicken. They're vegan because they don't want things dying."
